Tuning for Zero Packet Loss in Red Hat OpenStack Platform – Part 3

In Part 1 of this series Federico Iezzi, EMEA Cloud Architect with Red Hat covered the architecture and planning requirements to begin the journey into achieving zero packet loss in Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 for NFV deployments. In Part 2 he went into the details around the specific tuning and parameters required. Now, in Part 3, Federico concludes the series with an example of how all this planning and tuning comes together!

Tuning for Zero Packet Loss in Red Hat OpenStack Platform – Part 1

For Telcos considering OpenStack, one of the major areas of focus can be around network performance. While the performance discussion may often begin with talk of throughput numbers expressed in Million-packets-per-second (Mpps) values across Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) hardware, it really is only the tip of the performance iceberg. The most common requirement is to have absolutely stable and deterministic network performance (Mpps and latency) over the absolutely fastest possible throughput. With that in mind, many applications in the Telco space require low latency that can only tolerate zero packet loss.

In this “Operationalizing OpenStack” blogpost Federico Iezzi, EMEA Cloud Architect with Red Hat, discusses some of the real-world deep tuning and process required to make zero packet loss a reality!
